A blog for the darker hued unmarried in America
The blog that discusses the lifestyles of the Unclaimed Treasures
Hi, I’m Fannie Banks- Wells a Fiction, Non-Fiction Writer, and Poet. I love stories that address the issues that plague the African American community today. I love African American history as it I have learned that what has occurred in the past, correlates to what is occurring today
What is an “Unclaimed Treasure?
An uncoupled woman (I do not care for the word single ugh!)who is no less than valuable than the married treasures around her.
She lives life to the max whether in a relationship or not.
She spends time being grateful for what she does have instead of focusing on what she does not have.
The Unclaimed Treasure is busy doing work that fulfills her either professionally or maybe as a side gig.
She refuses to be defined by her marital status.
Why the name “Unclaimed Treasure?”
Often when some people talk about uncoupled women they describe them as “oh Fannie she’s single” with a tone of pity. I never cared for that because the “Unclaimed Treasures are anything but pitiful. I think of an unmarried woman the same way you might think of a valuable treasure that has been undiscovered. Just because the treasure is not “claimed” it does not make the treasure any less valuable, special or beautiful.
